“And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers,
which stood afar off:”
(Luke 17: 12)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
Our Focal Scripture introduces ten lepers. In Biblical Numerology, ‘ten’ means
‘complete through divine order’. So though the ten men were lepers, they were
complete by divine order. They may not have been complete by the standards of men,
but they were complete through God.
Friend, God says, you are complete in Him, nothing missing, nothing broken. You are
complete in God despite the pain, shame, disappointment, disgrace, misfortunes,
setbacks, rejections, betrayals, etc that have come your way. You are complete in
God despite your unanswered prayers and the things you are yet to achieve.
When you face the challenges and battles of life, remind yourself that you belong to
a God who won’t leave or forsake you. When things which are contrary to God’s word
and promises creep into your life, remind yourself that you belong to God, and that
no power of hell will prevail over you.
Those men were complete through divine order, they were complete in God, and God
made them complete in the eyes of men. If you are complete in Jesus, God will deal
with issues that are contrary to your divine completion. Your divine completion is
God’s platform to complete you in areas where you are physically incomplete.
The lepers were complete through God, not outside of God. Your completion is tied to
your connection to God. If you are connected to God, you are complete in Him; if you
are disconnected from God, whatever physical completion you have attained might
Hold on to God, and if you are complete in Him, He will complete you in those areas
where you are physically incomplete.
Pray With Me: Lord, I am complete in You; it’s not about who I am, it’s about Whose
I am, in Jesus’ name!
